“Pleasant but hot”
Reviewed 18 January 2013 via mobile

This is a pretty standard hotel in Amstelveen. The staff were all very pleasant and accommodating. The hotel is too hot and uncomfortable, yes you can adjust the radiator in the room but all areas are just uncomfortable. Rooms are very roomy and the beds are comfortable.

Stayed January 2013, travelled on business

Great Hotel, nice and quite, big rooms with very large bathrooms and separate loo.

If I had one Niggle the "cooked " part of the breakfast buffet not to good. But the rest of the buffet was great lots of choice.

Great staff very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: A long way out of Amsterdam if that is where you are visiting but easy to get to bus stop right outs...

This was our 2nd stay at this hotel and once again we were not disappointed . The staff were very friendly the room was massive (have done another review last year with pictures ) . This time we were placed at the front of the hotel with a balcony . The hotel is on a main road but to be honest it did not bother or interupt our sleep or resting time . The hotel breakfast was lovely with a selection of meats , cheese , rolls , croissants , eggs , fruit and also sausage and beans . The staff in the restaurant were very friendly and every morning there was a pot of coffee on the table and tea on request with fresh pure orange available . The hotel is approximatley 35 minutes away from Amsterdam central but to be honest it is an experiance seeing all different town in between the hotel and city center , one in particular was Amstelveen . The metro was about a ten minute walk from hotel which is a straight walk . For those who dont mind a little walk it lovely . Buying a GVB ticket was the best thing .. We payed 16 euros each but it gave us unlimited travel on the metro and trams so the metro from the hotel was fantastic cause we could go backwards and forwards as and when required and they run every couple of minutes . All said and done this hotel is lovely and this once again was not a disappointment

Average hotel if you are in business trip, otherwise is not well connected. I wanted to have dinner outside, and only one restaurant was outside, managed by the same property (I guess), with acceptable food, but extremely slow service. Me and my friends spent 3 hours for the dinner.
Far from the airport or Amsterdam city center, were you need to spend 40 euros for any of those destinations.
If you are in business meetings around then it is OK.
The room was enough, but a bit low average, and the view through the balcony was awful, facing a yard with rests of wood and old machinery.
The bar in the hotel is very small, and very short in offering. This is very bad considering there is nothing around.

It takes 10 minutes to walk to the metro and then 40 minutes to Amsterdam. No Airport Shuttle Service. Actually there is a bus stop right in front of the Hotel but who wants to go by bus? The Hotel is dark and old fashioned.
Our room was with balcony full of weeds and view over a construction area.
They say they are a business hotel but which business can be done without WiFi? There was the possibility to get acess but it was quite expensive.
We have been there with a large group so we got Breakfast in a special room. It was not good at all, only toast and few cheese and sausage. But we saw the breakfast room for the other guests where they offered a really good breakfast with croissants and other good stuff.

Feels good when you're there for business purposes, but only for that. All costs otherwise extra, but do exist. Internet, print service etc..
You live too far away from everything if you're not by car. It takes 10 minutes to walk to the metro and then 40 minutes to amsterdam. It takes 30 minutes to the airport. As staff said in turistonformationen at the airport "you live far away from amstedam" and that is true. In addition, I received incorrect information from hotel staff regarding 48 hour card for public transport "it does not exist anymore" - it is not correct - it is really still there.

Room Tip: Nice rooms, cleaning is perfect. Location is poor.
